Kanye Says Jesus Is King: What Does Tim Keller Say?

In case you haven’t heard, rapper Kanye West titled his newest album Jesus Is King. 

“Jesus is king.”

Just three words, but they carry a world of meaning.

Tim Keller explores that meaning in his book with the same title, Jesus the King. See how Jesus came as a king—but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has.

Part of the introduction reads, “You may know King’s Cross as a railway station in London, England, one that has been immortalized in the Harry Potter books. But it’s such a perfect encapsulation of the meaning of Jesus’ life that I couldn’t resist borrowing it for the original title of this book.”1

Keller divides the book into two sections: “The King” and “The Cross.”

Both will give you an unforgettable look at Jesus and bring you to know him better.

    Please realize your article is incorrect. Kanye West’s accompaning film for his album came out the same day of release in IMAX theatres. This article is unhelpful.
